    Keep in mind that this necklace is handmade and vintage, please check picture closely for more details and general condition. As this is a vintage hand crafted tribal piece, made and worn under rugged mountain and desert conditions, there likely will be imperfections, such as, but not limited to. irregularities, discoloration, uneven coloration or size, missing stones, asymmetry, loss of finish, cracks. These add to the character and individuality of the piece. The beauty of these pieces lie in their unique design and in the lives they have lived.

    The word Kuchi itself is from a Persian word meaning migration, in relation to nomads or gypsies, and does not describe a particular group or people, but rather a state of being, incorporating many different tribes and peoples, but in particular the Pashtoon tribes that wandered the border areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Designs are often centuries old and incorporate influences from India, Central Asia, the Middle East, and former Soviet Republic states. The metal used is often melted down from whatever was available to the jeweler.
